Ahmed the Philosopher
Thirty-Four Short Plays for Children and Everyone ElseUnknown - 2014
English-speaking readers might be surprised to learn that Alain Badiou writes fiction and plays along with his philosophical works and that they are just as important to understanding his larger intellectual project. In Ahmed the Philosopher, Badiou's most entertaining and accessible play, translated into English here for the first time, readers are introduced to Badiou's philosophy through a theatrical tour de force that has met with much success in France. Ahmed the Philosopher presents its comic hero, the?treacherous servant" Ahmed, as a seductively trenchant philosopher even as it.
